NOW WERE ARE THE PRIMERS! game is over Vista!
Already have actual bricks on shelves
Everything online is out of stock anyway.
I don't care about ammo I load my own, so I'm going more for reloading components.
As for prices, don't expect prices to drop to the good old days. Nothing much ever does. Now in addition to crazy demand, we have supply chain problems and rampant inflation across the board. These days when I find 9mm at about .35/round I buy. With the military's new guns in new calibers, zillions of rounds of 6.8 will start soaking up raw materials even more.
I would like to have a couple more boxes of 30-30, 30-06 and 410 but those are still hard to find in my area and when I do they are high priced.
I have a good stash of ammo and have stopped buying till $ comes down. Well, I may could be talked into buying a box of 38spl jhp if not really bad.
only ammo I “did” buy was .22 and shotgun. Shells have are 100% more expensive and .22’s are 150% more expensive. So, Looking into reloading shells, one component at a time. .22 not buying! NOPE!
remember Walmart $22 for 100 12g target… SAY bye to those days
I used to have a semi truck that I leased to FedEx. It had two 85 gallon fuel tanks. Today it would cost about $1,000 to fill up. Once.
Think about the cost to ship a truckload of lead ammo across country at 4 1/2 mpg. $1.50 per mile just for fuel
Do as you will, but remember how it felt to "I shoulda' bought that when it was available".
It will never go down much, if at all. Shop around, deals happen if you're diligent.
The cost of doing all kinds of business is up these days and, like someone else said, these are the "normal" prices for the new shooters. So they must be glad to see some ammo available.
On a box of primers or a brick of 22LR?
Neither, bu at least one box of 32acp was involved 
Nope, Not going for it. Supply and demand. Thats what some of you people said before when there was much less ammo. Less ammo = higher prices.
But, Now. More ammo = lower prices.
I have much ammo now = I'm not so willing.
It's been said " Fools part easily from their money".
I say "Not this fool".
the only ammo I bought in the last 2.5 years was 2 boxes of 10mm HPJ @ $26 each
10 Walmart shotshells 100 pack at $23 each
4 boxes of Walnart .22 CB @ $3-ish each
and THAT’s it! I’m waiting for 1997 prices! ooooh yeah
Way Way Way over price!
Then prices came down. They were even giving rebates.
Prices were cheap. I bought a lot of 5.56 for .22 - .27 per round.
Most of the .22 was 3-6 cents per round.
I doubt it will get that cheap again but these things go in cycles. I believe it will at least get reasonable again.
60 to 70 cents a shot for 38spl, all 223, 380.
The 9mm was kind of okay at 40 cents a shot.
That was just for ball ammo.
If I use currently priced rmr bullets 55gr fmj, single pounds of w748 I bought 2 days ago from brownells dot com, the current price for primers, I'm at like 36 cents a shot. Make that 40 cents a shot if I bought the brass from the scrap yard.
If they want to buy .223 for $.40-$.70 a pop… have at it. Me and everyone else is paying $100 to fill up the mini-van and $40 for the Prius. Sum it up! I Gots no money to Shoot
seen the price of beef steak! yeah, my beef consumption is1/4 of last year. Use to have a Steak 1-2 times a week. Now, 1st a month, and that’s eating at home
